HAVERI: State BJP president K S Eshwarappa announced that the party would not issue tickets in the coming Assembly elections to those leaders who are creating confusions in the state BJP.  

He was addressing media persons on his way to attend a religious programme at BJP leader Jagadish Basegenni’s residence on Sunday. Asked when the rift between BJP leaders will end, Eshwarappa said the party had decided to allot tickets only to sincere and loyal leaders. “I am confident that the party will win a minimum of 150 seats in the next Assembly elections,” he added.

Alleging that a few ‘migrant’ leaders were creating confusion in the party, he said while some migrant leaders were an asset to the party, others had became hurdles for its progress. However, the BJP was a national party, and it had the capacity to solve the crisis, he added. Turning down the allegation of Opposition leaders development works were halted in the state, Eshwarappa said the Opposition parties were daydreaming that the BJP government would collapse.

“The Planning Commission has certified that Karnataka stands second in development in India, and it happened because of the government’s commitment to uplift the farmers, weaker sections and backward communities in the state,” he added.
